After yesterday’s weather forced the scrub of SpaceX’s 18th Commercial Resupply Services (CRS-18) mission to the International Space Station, the Falcon 9 rocket stands ready for a second launch attempt today, July 25, at 6:01 p.m. EDT. Launching from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station’s Space Launch Complex 40 in Florida, CRS-18 will deliver numerous science investigations, supplies and equipment to the orbiting laboratory.
Weather remains a concern for today’s launch. Primary concerns are the cumulus and anvil cloud rule, as well as lightning. However, SpaceX and NASA are monitoring the weather closely as they continue to work toward a 6:01 p.m. launch. Join us here on the blog and NASA TV for updates and a live launch countdown, beginning at 5:45 p.m.
